The A&S YODA Project
Mentoring for Graduate Students
The YODA Project provides 1-hour supplemental mentoring sessions on a wide range of topics for A&S graduate studenrts. Please use the zoom link next to the topic and date/time to register for that session. Please register early for any or all of the sessions. You can register up to 24 hours before each session. Once you register you will be sent a confirmation and a calendar invite with the zoom link. You can take any session, no matter what department the “yoda” is in.
In particular, because of the heightened stress levels we are all working under, we would like to highlight the virtual yoga/meditation sessions led by the wonderful Lisa Harrison.
